Today we are going to talk about “the project setup”…This is going to be something new for everyone who have never deal with this kind of service before. If you’re contractor, real-estate developer or coordinator, keep in mind that sending data files to a service unit like us is very important factor to make things smooth in the long run. So, here we are to tune you up with us 3D visualizers, to tell you the essentials!
1. Technical files: *.dwg, *.obj, *.3ds, *.skp and other 3D files
First and foremost; 3D file, it is the main thing we use to communicate together between our client and 3D render team. You can send the specific files without explaining the details. The professional 3D visualizer can understand your project over than 60% after opening these files. The filename extension we’ve enlisted are the most popular used in our field and mostly compatible to any 3D rendering programs up to date.
2. Scope of the project
We had encountered the problem that was caused by our clients many times; Information overload. Sending all of your files to us is not a productive way to collaborate. To communicate effectively and save some of your time, we ask you to open your project in PC, press print screen button on the keyboard, and encircle the spots that need us to work for you. The unwanted contents should be specified in detailed writing or image references.
3. Mood board & references
As humans, we have the different experiences. To communicate something very conceptual like idea, we need to find the common ground. In 3D rendering field, a clear mood board which present your idea is the best solution to communicate with us 3D visualizers. Additionally, to make your idea looks real, you need the references. The references can be a series of published project images that similar or related to your project. Besides, the references can be a commitment for the makers that what you expect for the final result. With both mood board and references, the 3D makers can work on the project conveniently.
4. Rough sketch
From our experiences, in the beginning of the project from our side, mostly are worked with uncompleted 3D file. So, in order to be concise, the responsible person should send some sketches of the additional part for explaining the details.
5. Camera view
This can be overlooked by many people. When you work on your project, don’t forget to set your desired camera angle. No matter how the high resolution work you obtained, if your work cannot bring the most featured details of your project, the first impression is gone. Attractiveness of your image mostly depends on camera angle. The preset camera angle from our client can save time for both 3D makers and contractors.
